With just 5 weeks to go until the inaugural Breaking Bands Festival the team are extremely delighted to announce that ticket sales have gone through the roof in the past month thanks to great promotion from all of the media sponsors, the bands and the public all having a little faith in what has become the hardest time of year for many festivals with at least 4 announcing they have had to cancel due to poor ticket sales amongst other reasons.
With less than 100 tickets left as announced last week, the rush has continued especially as the organisers have also said there will be no on the gate tickets available so its advanced only.
The great news about the festival predicting a sell out… 4 other festivals are taking place in the Midlands the same weekend including the well established Bearded Theory, SOPHIEFest and Glastonbudget so the Midlands is the place to be that weekend and the Met office also predicting record high temperatures for that weekend, what more could people want?
As with many festivals, line-ups change for many reasons and unfortunately Breaking Bands Festival fell foul to a few bands having to pull out. Fortunately, the back up list of bands is so good that it was still difficult to replace the bands.
The Goddamn Electric and Skarthia have recently announced their exit from the festival and as of today there is another casualty to the list, Death Ape Disco. Last week metal band Cambion and rock band Defy All Reason were added and today South Wales rockers Psycho Kiss, straight off the back of a very successful main stage at HRH AOR have also been added as replacement bands and what an honour it is to have them all step into the breach.
Finally, as the festival is almost full now the festival organisers have decided to announce their Friday night secret band as Birmingham metal band Haerken who are well known for their medieval battles with inflatable swords and are sure to make the party on the Friday night.
So a few changes to the festival but all in all, still one amazing line-up!
